this is happening and did evaluing the brand. >> the yankees and orioles one team apart. >> the baltimore team is amazing. this was a team people thought they would lose 100 games. it's been -- that baltimore is a great story. we're going to see something interesting with the postseason this year. we're going to have five teams for the first time, this sort of play-in game. i think among purists that's ruffled some feathers. i think it's great. i think you look at the nba, more than half the team makes the postseason. in baseball they play 162 games. why not let more teams have a chance at the playoffs? it's a new wrinkle this year. some good races and i think these playoff drives, it's always good for the fans, and i think this is a move that was overdue. >> finally, a sad story here of vince young. he's a former heisman trophy winner, signed a $26 million contract, and now he's supposedly broke. how does that happen? >> unfortunately, it's not a new story. i mean, we see guys getting a lot of money, not always a lot of financial sophistication. in this case if you read about this case, one o
for a call in that one. >> that one went in favor of the home team in baltimore. that call happened to be correct. here it is on "sunday night football." however, if the credibility of the replacement officials is what it is and it's only getting worse by the week, if you have one of these, even if the call happens to be correct go against a home team, like lupica makes a great point, with incivility being what it is and the fan behavior we see with drinking and barnyard chants on a perceived missed call there, could be a very dangerous situation if one of these calls goes against a home team. >> real, real quickly. belichick, the penalty against him should be or will be what is this. >> a substantial fine. i don't think they will suspend him. >> bob costas, thank you. >> you know what annoys me even more than the replacement officials. >> what? >> getting up early to talk about this. >> the whining, savannah. >> once a year or something. every day for us. >>> let's move to politics now. president obama and mitt romney are fine-tuning their message to voters with the first president
explains. >> wolf, this is the sadie may room of the baltimore art. she was a well-known donor, a patron of the arts in baltimore. she lent a painting to this museum many decades ago. in 1951 that painting was stolen from this museum, the circumstances around that are not clear. but it made its way somehow from 1951 to a flea market in west virginia a couple of years ago where it was sold for $7 where it was actually bought at a flea market with just some other kind of trin kwets in a box. it is worth up to or possibly over $100,000. and we're here with the director of the baltimore museum of art. can you tell us how you think it made its way from being stolen here in 1951 to being sold in west virginia at a flea market. >> it's a bigamist ri. of course we may never know the course of the painting. we didn't have computers, we didn't have digital images. things were recorded by hand on index cards, things were mimeographed or carbon paper. very different from how we record information today. so we'll be very lucky, i think, to find out the whole story. >> well, good luck in trying to fin
. host: let's go to our democrats lined. such is in baltimore -- lisa is in baltimore. go ahead. caller: hi. the speech last night, he signed, sealed, and delivered it. i feel he will be our next president. host: thanks for your call. tulsa, oklahoma, gilbert is on our independent line. hi, go ahead. we will put that on hold and i'm sorry, go ahead. caller: i'm sorry. one of the things i thought was astounding at both conventions was at the rnc there was not one mention of george bush or dick cheney, nothing about them. and nothing about sarah palin. sarah palin helped to put the rnc in the power they have and she did not speak. what the guy just said about saving souls, where are the christian churches on fighting these wars? not one church has mentioned stopping these wars and killing innocent people. in oklahoma where i am, we just had a serious fire in medford, oklahoma. 90% of those homes did not have insurance. the person who would not meet the president at the airport had her hand out for fema. host: the governor? caller: yes. and in oklahoma, 75,000 people work for the federal g
. yes, the fans gave the returning refs a standing ovation before the baltimore ravens took the field to play the cleveland browns last night. carlos diaz from hln sports was lucky enough to be at the game. good morning, carlos. you survived. >> by the way, you mentioned the money hoon stage. this is all out blind love going on right now, carol. let me tell you one thing. what i learned by talking to ravens fans, they hate two things, pittsburgh steelers fans and refs. let me say it. last night when jean saratori, the lead official walked out on the field and got a standing ovation they cleared a referee from pittsburgh. what is going on in the nfl right now? made the three and a half hour drive and cheered when he walks out. i have to tell you, you couldn't have scripted it better than a hollywood movie. tipping the cap there. looking great. fit. good head of hair and the crowd cheering referees now that they're back and the replacements are gone. >> what makes it stranger, ray lewis came out and hugged a referee. >> yeah. the funny thing, i talked to so many fans before the game. wh
. they returned to the field as they said there. standing ovation at last night's baltimore-ravens, cleveland browns game. the lead referee said it was good to be back. the cheers from the baltimore crowd quickly turned to boos. when the refs made a call ends if the home team. things were pretty much back to normal. there was no headline making gaffe like the touchdown call by the replacements as we like to call them during monday's green bay-seattle game. bill: i thought they would give them slack until sunday afternoon. first quarter at baltimore. essential question for the campaign of the president. stay the course with president obama or go with governor romney. brand new fox polling shows this. a largely percentage of the likely voters believe the country's policies need to change. governor mike huckabee, former governor of arkansas and host of "huckabee". what does that tell you? >> it shows how dissatisfied people are. when you get to 75%, who is the 25% who thinks we're doing things right? where do they get their information? but it's bad news because it shows that this is not a parti
seattle or let seattle beat green bay on monday and then this, the kick by baltimore that angered bill belichick so much he grabbed that ref. he got a $50,000 fine for it. rob, i want to show everybody the front of "the post." oh say can't owe see? they have a good time with the headlines. but explain what the very latest is now. that's been talk this afternoon that maybe they were going to go back under one roof and hash this out. >> yeah, thomas. after monday night's debacle, the owners and officials stayed up until 2:00 in the morning last night trying to hash this thing out. reports are coming out now this afternoon that they're very close, that they have agreed on some key issues. the big issue that's still outstanding, of course, the one that's always a problem in negotiations, money. but apparently they are getting close. and i think a lot of people now following this think that the replacement refs if not by tomorrow night which is the next scheduled game in the nfl will be out of there and the regular officials back by this weekend. nothing confirmed yet but they seem to be cl

unprecedented happened on thursday night in baltimore, deb. fans actually gave a standing ovation to nfl officials. that's how bad this has gotten. monday night, of course, the botched call, changed the outcome of the seahawks-packers game in favor of seattle. that kind of led to a public outcry. this cannot stand. 17 hours of negotiations between the nfl and the officials on tuesday. finally late wednesday night, they had an agreement in principle. now finally the agreement has been formalized. the referees are back on the field and sunday's games will be fully staffed by the proper officials. >> you know, what's interesting is that one of sticking points is that nfl owners wanted the referees to become full-time nfl employees. a lot of these refs hold other jobs. and that was one of the reasons that the owners were so unwilling to compromise. why? i mean, these are very dedicated, professional referees. why should that technically be an issue? >> this is one of the things that gave the referees a really strong position in the bargaining. take the most famous referee, ed hochuli. he wor
